Rudolf Steiner made reference to different aspects of food and nutrition in many different talks and lectures, but they had never before been collected together in one place in English. This comprehensive collection of extracts includes Steiner's ideas on all aspects of nutrition, from milk for children, coffee and tea, alcohol, nicotine, honey and potatoes to vegetarianism, digestion, temperaments, taste and metabolism.


'In this 240 page book, one can find in one place all the important things that Steiner had to say on nutrition, food intake, how various food stuffs affect the etheric, astral, and Ego bodies, what foods affect the various organs of the body, and how anthroposophy's view of the care and feeding of the human body differs from materialistic scientists. This is a great compilation and should be a part of everyone's Steiner library.'
